A Sweet Studio Session for Newborn Baby Lucie!

A new month means an adorable studio newborn session! This cuteness is brought to you by my clients Sue and Brian. Sue approached me with a beautiful concept, and I was all in. I couldn’t wait to arrange all the details. It ended up being a darling neutral floral, and simply styled session with the coolest family ever. I can’t get enough of this fun family newborn session. Now, get ready, because baby season is here and you’re going to need all of this inspiration.

It wouldn’t be a Looking Up Photography session without a cute little newborn headband! Along with all of the adorable neutral details and textures. I’m a sucker for the little things and also loved the hues Sue requested for this session.

Onto the next pretty set up! Of course we used the best newborn accessories from my collection. I am in love with this entire arrangement of images in white – aren’t they adorable? I did my thing photographing an amazingly squishy sleepy Lucie. I love how pretty she looked in her headband with that giant white flower! Amazing imagery galore!

An Amazing and Coastal Cool Family Newborn Session at the Studio for Baby Teddy

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of planning and capturing this stupendous family newborn session for a family celebrating the birth of their newest family member, Teddy! We had so much fun celebrating this cutie and the rest of the family as well! Teddy’s mom Lori had a beautiful, coastal inspired vision that we brought to life with understated colors and textures. I’m so excited to FINALLY share this one! Waiting 2 months is hard, my friends!

Teddy had this slightly serious face all queued up for me. I love when I can capture the little details of an awake newborn for my clients!

The session was held at my local studio here in Greenwich. It is such a perfect place for a family newborn session! I have all of my newborn props and textiles at my disposal to make it extra pretty. If I may say so, my blanket collection is to die for!

0290 Looking Up Photography0243 Looking Up Photography

The studio floor was adorned with the softest flokati that perfectly complements the buttery skin of a new baby. It was spring fever with all of the dusty blues, and creamy hues in each image! New life should be a party after all, so we went all out!

A Beautiful and Sunny Family and Maternity Session at the Beach!

What’s better than an evening at the beach with your family?! I’ll tell you what – add the celebration of a growing new life! Sessions at Greenwich Beach might just be considered a favorite pastime of mine. You just have to appreciate the beautiful backdrop and light! No matter where you are in your life, it’s always important to find time to document your family, and what better time than when your family will be growing. I created this special session with the help of Jessica, Ronaldo, and their daughter Natalia, whose newborn session I photographed in 2019. Check out all of the pretty below!

The grandparents were included in our session and I’m so in love with these photos! We did some relaxed, classic posing with the entirety of this gorgeous family. A mix of neutrals and that vibrant cornflower blue really completed the session gallery! All of this took place during the fabulous golden hour at Tod’s Point. Perfection!

A Beautiful Session at Tod’s Point with Fall Foliage Flair!

Last fall I had the chance to photograph the prettiest family. Katie and Alex’s family reminds me of the joy of having little ones on the move, and how fortunate we are to have such a beautiful ‘backyard’ to play in, here in Greenwich, Connecticut. While I was editing this session, I played some of my favorite autumn-inspired music and it was heavenly! Today I’m sharing a little bit of this perfect fall family session, with a little fall foliage flair. Scroll down to see all the sweet details, including a local Greenwich magazine feature!

Well, I’d love to begin by sharing this delightful magazine cover of Greenwich Neighbors magazine, published this month by Best Version Media. Katie used my photos for their feature and it turned out so gorgeous. You can also visit Katie’s blog, Witten Kitchen, here. It’s the little things, for me.

When I first saw this image of father and son from the back of my camera, I loved the expressions it held. It has just enough softness and movement in it with that amazing natural backdrop, and baby Rory’s extended hand. This session was inspired by family, the season, and the natural beauty of the place we call home. Allowing children to be children is a key element of any outdoor family session (or any session, for that matter). Kids add so much life and emotional color to an image, often bringing out the very best and most organic expressions in their parents as well. I love how Alex, Rory, and I capitalized on that, here, allowing Katie’s vision for her family photos to be brought to life almost effortlessly.

1300 Looking Up Photography1448 Looking Up Photography

For the final photo, I always like to get a snapshot of parents without their fabulous children. It can be easy to forget that kids exist because of parents – and not the other way around – and it’s good for both adults and children to see their love for each other shine on its own!

A Magical Beach Session for the Sweetest 2 Year Olds

I’m in love with the beach. If you’re a beach family, there is no better location for your family portraits than Greenwich Beach! And what’s better than getting together with one of your favorite client families for a birthday celebration on the beach (times two)?! The twins turned two, and mom wanted a family beach session with her special people, complete with sandy toes and plenty of splashing! I had the best time putting together this gallery, and it sure looks like they enjoyed themselves, too. The beach brings out the best in little kids, and this family knows how to have fun! Of course, the beach also provides a stunning backdrop for your family pictures.
As usual, I have plenty of photos for you to see!

Some things never change, and two year-olds splashing in the water are as cute as ever! Of course I encouraged them to splash as much and as big as they wanted to! Then dad came in with that calming dad presence and I was able to capture some beautiful, poignant photographs to round out the gallery. Pure love!

Kisses for mom and dad were a must. Are two year-olds even two year-olds without them? And I can’t get enough of the gorgeous setting. Greenwich Beach is simply stunning!

A Cozy and Enchanting Studio Family Newborn Session for Max

Believe it or not, I have yet another session from 2021 – with one of my favorite families – that I need to share! Another magical session that has been tucked away in my vault of sessions itching to be shared! I got to spend time with mom Hien, dad Seth, and sweet Kaia once again, this time with baby boy Max in tow! The studio provided a gorgeous setting, and we added some whimsical touches, pops of color, and cute details. It was a beautiful day for beautiful people, and I feel fortunate that Hien again asked me to capture their family!

Have you ever seen such marvelous little cheeks? And Max was absolutely perfect, allowing me to create these stunning images with ease. I had so much fun creating imagery for his family to add to their walls and share with family.

0375 Looking Up Photography

These new gray newborn accessories! I can’t get enough of them, and they seem to really suit nearly every newborn session! I loved using some rustic wood accents to complement the lush softness of the gray accessories. And of course, I had to use my favorite cream colored flokati, which complements everything perfectly.

0405 Looking Up Photography0417 Looking Up Photography

Kaia was so sweet with her new little brother, and she also was styled in the prettiest outfit. I love the delicacy of her ensemble!

Let’s Go to the Beach! It’s a Maternity + Family Beach Session

 

It’s a new year and I still have plenty to share from 2021! Let’s take a look at this adorable session! I had the pleasure of photographing Hien, Seth, and Kaia again. Kaia’s newborn session is a favorite of mine. You can take a look at it here! Hien contacted me to photograph their family again – not only because it was Kaia’s first birthday – but because the family is growing once more. She wanted to document both milestones and also include grandparents and other extended family. I happened to know just the place to capture this session, at the cutest little swath of beach right here in Connecticut. Not only is the location so pretty, but it’s an amazing spot for kids!

Wait ’til you see how we worked together to capture awesome memories for this beautiful family!

Hien chose the prettiest lavender gown for this maternity and extended family beach session. The family wore neutrals and pastels for their photographs, and I loved the color scheme!

I loved the blend of blushes, blues, and whites, and how could those darling children not make you smile? Isn’t this location the dreamiest?

These two cousin cuties. I love how serious their expressions are! And those outfits were just perfection.

Karen-72Karen-26

These beach maternity images were some of my favorites! The pairing of pastels against the moody water and sky will always have a place in my heart. Those adorable laughs between Hien and Kaia won’t soon be forgotten. I can just see those pictures paired with some photos from Kaia’s newborn session. And of course, Hien can complete the look with a sweet image of Kaia with her grandparents.

Karen-29Karen-41Karen-48

We all had a lovely little time together. It’s the sweet relationships between family members that I always love, that really complete the session! Plus, who doesn’t love the beach?! So much fun!

The Sweetest and Prettiest Family Newborn Session for Lucie

Today, it’s a newborn celebration! Baby Lucie was born and I helped her family celebrate with a studio family newborn session, gorgeous greens, fabulous florals, and lots of cuteness! This family was a repeat client (I previously photographed big brother Arlo). The Looking Up Photography studio was the perfect place to have the family gather and celebrate the newborn birthday girl. I had the best time and I was so lucky to have an angel baby to help me bring this session to life. This session will be hard to top in 2022 but I think I can do it!

The organic backdrops and accessories are some of my favorite to date! Adding in gorgeous blush hues was the icing on the cake. Isn’t it all so lovely?

I was so excited when Lucie’s mom Sophia went with me again for their second bundle of joy, and how adorable are the results of this session?! This family is full of natural beauty, and they made photographing this session such an easy job for me. My photography studio also truly helps me make magic and provides the most amazing light for my clients. Of course, some family portraits were the perfect finishing touch!

Newborn Photography Greenwich – Baby Girl Josephine

Josephine was joined by her mother Kellie, father Kenny, and big brother Bennett for her newborn session. This family newborn session was one to remember. I had previously photographed big brother Bennett when he joined the world. Despite the challenges of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, Kellie valiantly displayed her deep gratitude for the gift of a daughter, Josephine. In other words, a newborn right now? Totally worth it.

I’m happy to have captured this family’s blessing, Josephine, in a way that I hope they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

“May you always know, little one, that you were wished for, longed for, prayed for, and will be forever loved.”

1031 Looking Up Photography

The love parents have for their children is otherworldly. Miraculously, for many of us, that love begins when we first see an ultrasound or hear a heartbeat for the first time. When they’re finally in our arms, our lives are forever changed. Our priorities change to focus on our children and ensuring we provide the best life for them.

1040 Looking Up Photography1050 Looking Up Photography

When we give our first child a sibling, words can’t express how it feels seeing them together. Our love for both of our children instantly grows deeper and stronger. Maybe we learn a few new ways to practice patience, too! If we’re dedicated to doing what’s best for our family, as Kellie and Kenny are, a growing family can strengthen the bond between partners.

1079 Looking Up Photography1095 Looking Up Photography

This sweet face and these delicate hands? Worth the challenges of pregnancy. Motherhood fulfilled, once again.

Parenthood is a gift, and I hope Kellie and Kenny are continuing to enjoy almost every moment of it.

Creating memories for my clients is so important to me. This family portrait session is a celebration of the joy that has been bestowed on them. New life! I hope Josephine will enjoy these photos as she gets older, too.

Newborn Photography Greenwich – Baby Logan

 

Sandra, Logan’s mom, wanted to have a family newborn photography session so that she could look back on these images and cherish this special time forever. In her client survey, she shared with me how she wanted poses similar to and would complement the maternity and newborn imagery from big sister Taylor’s sessions.

As soon as baby Logan entered my studio, I fell completely in love with my business all over again.

 

0660 Looking Up Photography0690 Looking Up Photography

When I first learned that Sandra and her husband Andrew selected me to photograph the newest addition to their family once again, I was totally thrilled. After the challenges I faced as a photographer due to COVID, it was a welcome relief to see a ‘repeat’ family. Sandra made some photo orientation suggestions so that the photographs from this session could complement a family portrait and solo newborn portrait of Taylor already on display on a gallery wall in their home.

0693 Looking Up Photography

Even with the bulk of the coronavirus pandemic hopefully behind us, there’s always an element of nerves when it comes to scheduling sessions these days. But as a professional photographer, it’s so important not to worry and to know that what will be will be. There is always hope in the world and we have to trust in the universe’s timing – not ours. My smallest clients are the most amazing proof of this.

0698 Looking Up Photography0585 Looking Up Photography

Sure enough, this family newborn photography session went off without a hitch. These days, I almost cry with joy every time I have the honor of culling and editing another session. I have also had the best time adding to my newborn photography accessories collection. After all, who doesn’t love seeing a newborn baby in a basket (or a basin, in this case)?! It’s just so much fun.

0615 Looking Up Photography

The moment we placed big sister Taylor and baby brother Logan together, I could feel the rush of love Sandra and Andrew have for their little ones. Having children can be like falling in love all over again as parents’ hearts sync with their new baby. Looking forward, I hope to see this beautiful and healthy family again for some family portraits. Seeing my tiny clients grow up is a dream come true.
